Held at Indiana University in the early 1970s, the first Octubafest was organized by the world-renowned champion of the tuba, Harvey Phillips, who wanted to give tuba students the opportunity to perform music expressly written for their instrument and also wanted to pay tribute to his teacher, William J. Bell.

The concert is free and open to the public.
